Reading & Writing Conferences
Teachers make time for individual reading and writing conferences. Reading conferences will check for fluency and comprehension.
There are many specific reading skills that we teach directly through daily mini-lessons and independent practice.
Sample question: (test 2003)
After reading 2 1/2 pages about “Lucy and the Chickens,” the children are asked questions like:
#7 Which of the following is the best summary of the story?
A. Lucy’s father comes home from town and sees the henhouse door open. He uses chicken feed to get the chickens back into the henhouse.
B. Lucy is too short to reach the hook on the henhouse door. She promises her father that she will never try to open the door by herself.
C. Lucy is not supposed to open the henhouse door by herself, but she wants to give the chickens some water. When she opens the door, the chickens get out. Lucy and her father must catch them.
D. Lucy helps around the family farm on a hot day. She sweeps the porch, gives water to the dog, and waters the flowers. Then she begins to worry that the chickens are thirsty, too.
READ to your children.
LISTEN to your children read.
ENCOURAGE your child to read SILENTLY…and then ask them to tell you what they read. Ask questions.
CHECK OUT high-interest books, such as Bluebonnets, Newberry Winners, and books recommended by friends.
As parents, we understand that schedules can
be very busy and hectic. Sometimes creative solutions,
such as completing reading/studying for DOS in the car
on the way to games or practices, might be necessary.
BE ROLE MODELS…let your child see you read books, magazines, and newspapers. Share interesting articles with your child.
SHARE with them stories you loved as a child.

At home, you can help reinforce what your child is learning by:
Involving your child in real life math activities
“So far, how do you like third grade?”
“What I like about third grade is learning new things.”
“I like learning about Science,
tools, and matter.”
“I like that third grade has a
later lunch. That way I have
More of an appetite.”
“It has better math!!!!”
“I like the crafts we do, like our book box!”
